How can my second husband adopt my daughter from previous marriage? I was divorced in first marriage. Is this possible to write my second husband's name as her legal guardian and to give her surname o


A. Dear Client,

The need for the biological father's consent in your current situation hinges on the terms agreed upon during the divorce of your first marriage. If you opted for a one-time settlement, you may not require the biological father's consent as it is already settled in court. To provide further assistance, please share the signed consent terms and the divorce petition for a more detailed examination.

Illatom son in law have rights in property after getting divorce


A. Dear Client,
The rights of an estranged son-in-law in the property after divorce generally depend on the applicable legal provisions in the jurisdiction where the divorce occurred.

However, if there were specific agreements or court orders outlining property division or maintenance during the divorce proceedings, those would be legally binding.

In the absence of a will, the inheritance laws of your jurisdiction will typically determine who the legal heirs are. The laws may recognize both blood relatives and adopted children as legal heirs, depending on the circumstances and local regulations. If you ...ReadMore

The definition of legal heirs can vary, so it's crucial to understand the specific laws that apply to your situation. While you men ...ReadMore
